On this day of our Lenten journey we read in 2 Peter and the writings of Saint Irenaeus about God's great patience and our need for conversion.
Our Lord desires our conversion because he seeks for us to be made whole, to be healed, to end the separation between us that has been caused by sin. Conversion is the means by which, through the grace of God, that split between Creator and creation is mended. Though it indeed requires our effort, we are encouraged through God's aid and through knowing that our Lord is much more patient with us, than we are often with ourselves.
